Life and lace are both exquisitely fragile.
Life is the space between one breath and the next. Lace is the space between one knot and the next.
When tied together into permanent knots, string becomes lace. When tied together through electrical charges, experiences become memories.
This sculpture is in honour of philanthropist and artist Al Green who recently passed away from Alzheimer's.
Mary Ann Grainger is an emerging artist who lives and works in Toronto. She has been a member of the Al Green Sculpture Studio since 2010.
Grainger’s mixed media and sculptural works are either text based, abstract or figurative, in whichever medium best communicates her ideas. Key themes are the power of art to stimulate debate and enact social change.
Grainger’s work is shown at Toronto galleries and is held in private collections across Canada.
